In what was billed to be a blow out, shaped up to be an instant classic between these historic franchises. The highly touted, Dallas defense squandered a 14-point lead as the Packers fourth quarter rally saw them end a five game skid and give them their first win since October. This was aided by Dallas continued lack of discipline, making mistakes that led to crucial game altering penalties. The Cowboys fell to the Packers in overtime: 28-31. The question is who’s to blame? Dallas Defense While the Dallas defense has been sensational this year, it appears there are huge kinks…

No Zeke? No problem. The Cowboys run game proved to be the difference maker in this contest. Over the last few weeks, especially in Dak’s absence it’s no secret that the Cowboys run game is being heavily relied on to establish the pass. Against the Bears, the Cowboys racked up 200 yards rushing despite Ezekiel Elliott being ruled out for this game as the Cowboys cruised to a 49-29 victory. Cowboys Run Game: Tony Pollard vs Zeke Elliott Who deserves the credit for the Cowboys run game? Who should lead the backfield? Some will argue after Sunday’s game it…

Shockingly, the Irish embarrassed themselves in front of their home crowd. After excellent showings in the past couple of weeks, Notre Dame was a 16.5-betting favorite against the then 1-4 Stanford Eagles. That being said, if this season has taught us anything for this team is that nothing is a given. Notre Dame falls to Stanford in a head-scratching loss. With Stanford coming into South Bend on a four-game losing streak and the Irish on a three-game winning streak – it felt all but certain that Notre Dame would continue rolling. However, under lukewarm offensive play-calling, Drew Pyne and this…

In this season’s edition of the Shamrock Series, Notre Dame (2-2) took on the 16th-ranked BYU Cougars in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After a lackluster performance from the Dallas Cowboys on opening night – along with losing Dak Prescott – the Cowboys looked dead-in-the-water. Fortunately, this team buckled down, committed fewer mistakes and was led by strong defensive effort en route to three straight wins! At the moment, it does appear the Cowboys are clicking on all cylinders! What has worked for them? Defensive Play – The Dallas Cowboys defense has been heavily featured over the last few weeks and is a huge reason for the Cowboys success. They have allowed only 15.5 points per game (3rd), 308 yards total offense (7th), a turnover…

We’re a month into football and our teams are continuing to take shape. I know some aren’t as lucky as others and may be sitting winless or with a single win.

In the Waiver Wire Week 5 edition, I’ll be adding a few more names than usual to really stretch the options out. Be sure you’re staying on top of your waivers, I always recommend waiting until the afternoon or after dinner to sit down and submit waivers. Those that keep up with me, I’m…
